Standard for Marine Gear Units: Rating and Application for Spur and Helical Gear Teeth

The AGMA Helical Enclosed Drive Marine Units Committee recently completed the development of the next version of their popular flagship standard ANSI/AGMA 6032-B13 “Standard for Marine Gear Units: Rating and Application for Spur and Helical Gear Teeth”.

The new standard supersedes ANSI/AGMA 6032-A94.

More information about this standard is available here.

AGMA has helped to set national gearing standards since 1916. The association also serves the focal point within the United States for the development of ISO gearing standards.

Today, this work is carried out by 27 Technical Committees.

AGMA standards address nearly all the critical gearing topics, from load capacity and lubrication to accuracy and inspection.
